Running a successful content strategy has its challenges.

Are you part of the 29% of B2C marketers who rate their organization's content marketing as being very successful?

These marketers have become champions at producing social media content, blog posts and articles, email newsletters, videos, podcasts, print magazines, livestreaming content, etc.

Although they are successful, these same B2C marketers still have challenges for 2020:

Improve the quality and the conversion rate of audiences.
Manage content distribution and promotion initiatives.
Increase the size of audiences and deploy better subscribed audience initiatives.
Focus on the quality and the quantity of the content that can be produced and published.
Gain better visibility on the performance and measurement of content initiatives.
"A common misconception is that when a customer uses their phone to search in-store, they’re just trying to see which of your competitors sells something for the cheapest price. While comparison shopping does happen, most in-store shoppers are actually searching online for more information about your store, brand, or the products you offer."

…and this is where content becomes so important for retailers.

How can you make sure your team and your strategy are properly aligned to achieve your goals?

Successful content marketing marketing departments have:

  • A documented content marketing strategy
  • Metrics to measure content performance and initiatives
  • A methodology to measure content marketing ROI

They use content marketing to:

  • Create brand awareness
  • Educate audience(s)
  • Build credibility and trust
  • Generate demand and leads
  • Build loyalty with existing customers
  • Build a subscribed audience

This allows them to prioritize their audiences’ informational needs over the organization’s sales and promotional message, this creating a relationship based on the delivery of value with content at all stages of the customer journey.
